Perhaps the denim substrate caught your eye. I have had a fascination with denim for some time now, perhaps making up for lost time as a child when I simply refused to wear jeans–or any pants that weren’t sweatpants–till I was in sixth grade. For a fabric, denim has some pretty strong associations and I wanted to experiment with it a little bit. How is it different than canvas? Is there any value added? How much cooler would the Mona Lisa be if it were painted on a denim rather than a canvas?
I have learned that denim is actually not that different than canvas. Primarily the two are just woven differently, with denim manufactured in a twill pattern usually using yarn of two different colors. On the close up photo, you can notice this effect. And like your favorite pair of jeans, this fabulous new work will break in with age providing you with decades of wearing pleasure. It can be yours starting today. Just stop by the gallery:
